Windows 7: Memory Hole Remapping problems...

Memory Hole Remapping problems...

Hi guys

Just got given a system to update to Windows 7 x64 (7127) from a friend, and having a little trouble with this one.

After install completed, and on final reboot, I got the dreaded BSOD, so it was stuck in this loop forever, until I removed 1 stick of RAM (2Gb), then system completed and loaded to desktop just fine. After more testing, I've discovered that it will only boot with 1 stick of RAM, unless I DISABLE 'Memory Hole Remapping' in BIOS, once this is DISABLED, then it boots fine with the 2 sticks of RAM (4Gb).

Problem with this, is that the BIOS and Windows 7 now only report 3.28Gb as usable!!, probably due to the 'Memory Hole Remapping' being DISABLED.

Board only has 2 RAM slots and takes a MAX of 4Gb, BIOS is up to date, and is an ECS AMD690GM-M2 model.

Is this the nature of the beast?
